Make Some Novel Progress

Taken near another Paris Metro station, from where we often emerged from the city's depths.

To the side is an unrelated photograph [I produced] for your enjoyment, as I prattle on about my affairs.

Writing a novel is a tedious endeavor to be sure – especially if one is also an avid reader who quite instinctively compares various masterpieces against one’s own seemingly inferior work, inspiring a perfectionist attitude about oneself. That would be one of my many authorial dispositions – as well as a love for literary adventure and a loathe for anything bland and boring in my writings. Therefore, when I approach those moments in my novel where characterization must take precedence over the rising or falling action, I find myself visage à visage with Writer’s Block. Yet it only takes a dab of inspiration to put me back on track – such a curious matter is writing. A joyous pastime when it is flowing forth and sprouting out in great heaps like the Niagara, and an aggravating stumbling block when it becomes as barren and dry as the Sahara.

On a side note – snow has begun to fall from the skies in great heaps upon the city, and I may just have a chance at some Winter photograph early this year after all!

Until then (or rather, till’ tomorrow),

Good night!


About Zechariah Barrett

Greetings! Jambo! Hola ! 你好 ! Bonjour ! Hallo ! Привет ! Buongiorno ! こんにちは ! Thanks for checking out my profile. I'm Zechariah, an author, photographer, graphics designer, language learner, techie... I'll stop there for now. One more thing. I'm also a Christian. Depending on your life experience, that may mean different things to you. I want to assure you, however, that I don't subscribe to all the prevailing views. I don't subscribe to hate. I don't engage in party politics. I both care about a robust economy as well as the environment and social issues. I want to truly live my life by the Spirit of Christ, and that entails loving others and caring for this world. That's how I'm different. I'm not here to cast judgmental glances or make you feel like trash. My heart is to help others, and I hope that shows in all that I do. I also want to have a discussion. Not a debate, not an argument. I want to engage with my readers and viewers regardless of our differences, and then start a conversation. Let's make this world a better place. Together.
